A local senior Garda has called on anyone with information about the disappearance of JoJo Dullard to “stand up to the plate” on the 26th anniversary of her vanishing.

JoJo (21) was hitching a lift to her home in Co. Kilkenny when she disappeared from Moone village in Co. Kildare on November 9th, 1995.

Over a quarter of a century has passed since the trainee beauty therapist went missing, and Superintendent Martin Walker of Kildare Garda Station has assured the public that the case is still being investigated.

Speaking on Kfm Radio on Tuesday, he urged anyone who knows anything about JoJo’s disappearance to come forward so that the Dullard family can finally have closure.

“This case was upgraded to a murder investigation last year and will never close,” Mr Walker said.

“The answers are out there. Somebody out there knows what happened and I would appeal to their sense of humanity to come forward and give us the small details that will bring this matter to conclusion.

“Please God, we will get some closure for the family, but we need people to come forward, stand up to the plate, and be good, civic-minded people.”

He added that all the circumstances surrounding the disappearance are being reviewed by the Serious Crime Review Team and local gardaí.

“The investigation is moving all the time,” he continued.

“You have various lines of inquiry and persons of interest. By no means is this investigation closed - it is live - and everything with any relevance is being examined and pursued to a conclusion.

“There are various leads and local gardaí are in constant engagement with the Serious Crime Review Team.”
